In an interview with Access Hollywood, the media mogul said she had experience some symptoms of a nervous breakdown earlier this year.
Oprah revealed that she was struggling with her OWN Network and filming ‘The Butler’ proved to be too much for her to handle. She explained her symptoms as this:
In the beginning, it was just sort of speeding and a kind of numbness and going from one thing to the next thing to the next thing. I will tell you when I realized that I thought, ‘All right, if I don’t calm down I’m gonna be in serious trouble.’ I was in the middle of doing voiceovers, you know? And I remember closing my eyes in between each page because looking at the page and the words at the same time was too much stimulation for my brain. I mean, I wasn’t ready to go run naked in the streets. Let’s make that very clear, but I had reached a point where I just couldn’t take in anymore stimulation.
